Tusk Talks: Amherst Community Connections

The Town of Amherst, like most of the country, is experiencing a shortage of affordable housing. To supplement The Student's coverage of the Town's policy response, we sat down with Sophia Harrison '22 and Julia Zabinska '22 to talk about their work for Amherst Community Connections — a local resource hub for those experiencing housing instability. Harrison and Zabinska detailed the nature of their work, expressed their own visions for change and emphasized the need for institutions — including Amherst College — to consider the nuanced, human stories behind the housing crisis.
